876 and climbing
That's the number of Liberals, Conservatives, LIB-Cons, CON-Libs, ProCons, Independents and Social Crediters that have gone into the Senate. Now I know most of you are thinking Trudeau would have appointed the most.
Nopers, not by a long shot. He comes in a tie for third, along with Wilfrid Laurier, each having appointed 81 Senators.
Mackenzie King appointed 103 of those 876 Senators, tops the list followed by the first Prime Minister, John A McDonald who anointed 91.
The number of Senators will climb to 894 by Christmas this year as Stephen Harper fills up every last empty seat in that red chamber.
